Revolutionise the way you think about composting. Using an organic fermentation process, the Bokashi Bin recycles all your domestic kitchen waste into valuable soil conditioner.

Dispose of all your waste in your kitchen, with no smell, no trip to the compost heap and no work to turn the heap. Dispose of all your waste – even dairy and fish – right in your kitchen, with no smell or trip to the compost heap. Revolutionise how you think about composting...

Invented in Japan, this all-food recycling system uses effective microbes or "bokashi" — a Japanese word meaning "fermented organic matter" — to decompose the matter. The fermentation process does not produce smells, so you can keep the bucket under your sink or in your home.

Freight surcharge: please note that shipments of the Bokashi bin to all areas of WA, NT & TAS and some areas of SA, VIC, NSW & QLD will incur an additional freight charge. If applicable, we will check this with you before despatch.

How it works:
Every time you add waste to the Bokashi bucket, you sprinkle a small amount of bokashi onto the waste (the bokashi is a fine grain like mixture). Once the container is filled to capacity (about 3 to 4 weeks for the average household), you can immediately shallow bury the fermented waste in your garden, planter or outdoor compost.
Or, you can let the waste continue to ferment for two weeks in another airtight container (such as a plastic bag or bucket with lid) and then transfer the matter into your garden. The extra fermentation means the material will break down faster in the soil.

In 2 or 3 weeks, the waste you have buried will have broken down into soil (humus) and will be rich with nutrients, microbes and enzymes, all naturally produced.

As the Bokashi bin fills, you also drain off a liquid that can be used diluted as a fertilizer or undiluted in septic tank systems and plumbing drains (the microbes help to break down waste in the system). You can even just tip it down your sink to help keep your drains clean.

Dimensions: 30cm side x 30cm side x 41cm high. 20L capacity. It will fit in the cupboard under some sinks, depending on your space of course.

5L and 1.5L bokashi refill bags are available. You can also read more about why fermentation is better than composting under the details of the 5L Bokashi refill.

For those living in apartments, you could pass the fermented waste on to a grateful community garden, friends, relatives or the apartment gardener.

Title : Perfect home composting system for apartment dwellers
Comment : This is our second bokashi bucket - for two people who eat at home pretty much every night + 2 dogs, we now have a great system with two bokashis, and two Compostas (which is a little worm farm buried into a large pot so the worms/organic matter/castings directly feed into the outer ring of soil). The fermented bokashi waste can go into the worm farm which is great as we don't have a good community garden option to bury it in. This works really well for us and means pretty much any food waste we can process in a closed loop at home, even though we live in an apartment on the edge of CBD.

Title : Great idea!
Comment : I have used this bokashi bucket and loved that it held about a month's worth of scraps (we have a big family), but the sour smell when you open the bucket does take a bit of getting used to.

Title : Good option for apartment dwellers
Comment : I can’t have a proper compost bin as I live in a unit, but this is good to reduce food waste going into landfill. Did es smell over time(mostly just after it’s been opened, but it lingers) , so it is worth finding a spot not near living space/kitchen.
